Synopsis

‘When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford,’ said Samuel Johnson in 1777. Since then the capital has been characterised variously as a ‘riddle’, a ‘cesspool’ and a ‘modern Babylon’, and both Londoners and visitors alike have continued to share their candid views of a great city in a variety of literary forms. This compact gift book is packed full of witty, scandalous and entertaining quotations about this famous city from the Middle Ages to the current decade.
